[ . . . ]   I am afraid I did it again today. I responded to one of your notes from Shaksper, and then found it went to your personal address.   This is going to be tough, since both your personal address and the server address appear in the server headers. I am as familiar with this problem as anyone, and yet still am as guilty as the others in that I am sure I have sent several notes to the wrong address. The REPLY function picks the address from the header, leaving no choice to the user, and not notifying them of the address until SEND.   My original suggestion was that you log on to the server to email a set of notes which should have the server as the return address, is this still a real difficulty.   I think this should be posted, so the others won't feel so guilty - and will realized even someone who is familiar with the system is a maker of the same mistakes.   Perhaps another solution would be just to have us all write POSTING as the first line of anything we want posted. mh (2) --------------------------------------------------------------26---- Date: Mon, 03 Sep 90 16:26:58 EDT From: Ken Steele < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it > Subject: Addressing Mail to SHAKSPER   [I should point out that I had no-one particular in mind when writing my previous note...]   I will acknowledge that it may be difficult for members to alter the destination of "replies," if members will recognize that it is not possible for me to obtain another address at this node. Simplicity is probably preferable, so let's simply agree on the following:   Anything sent to my address by a member of SHAKSPER will be presumed public unless specifically identified as private. Anything sent to SHAKSPER directly, or as a reply to a SHAKSPER mailing, will be presumed public. I will do my best, of course, to exercise editorial judgement when errors seem to have occurred. Members can circumvent the fallibility of this judgement by explicitly including the word PUBLIC or PRIVATE, at the beginning or end of a note.   Hopefully this compromise will be satisfactory and effective -- I certainly hate to waste valuable discussion time on such administrivia.                                                  Ken Steele                                                University of Toronto
